The mentorship program Space of Her Own is one of the beneficiaries of the Servant Forge Humanitarian Inaugural Ball, Sunday, January 20! Join the ball for hors d’oeuvres, live blues music, a beer and wine bar, and auctions. Admission is $155. See below for details!

“We are honored and elated to be included as a beneficiary for this distinct Inaugural Ball event that focuses its efforts on giving back to the community,” said Linda Odell, co-founder of SOHO – Space of Her Own. “We are glad to have been a part of the Alexandria community for more than a decade, supporting the growth and success of disadvantaged girls through our innovative mentorship programs, and will be able to further that work through the funds raised at Servant Forge. I attended this ball four years ago and had a blast. I look forward to attending again this year”   

The Servant Forge Humanitarian Inaugural Ball will be held on Sunday, January 20, in National Airport’s Historic Terminal A. After a $6 billion presidential election, the Ball will focus on the needs of those marginalized by abuse, neglect and indifference.  All proceeds from this bipartisan Ball will support gender-based violence prevention and intervention programs from King Street to Kenya, including Alexandria’s Domestic Violence Program and Sexual Assault Center, the  Alexandria Mentoring Partnership, the  SOHO-Space of Her Own creative mentorship program, and the  Gang Prevention, Intervention and Prevention and Education Program.

Admission is $155.00 per person and includes hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine bar and access to spectacular silent and live auctions. Entertainment will be provided by The Kelly Bell Band, voted Best Blues Band in the Mid-Atlantic Region for the past 12 years in a row.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
